Deleting Twitch Messages (Step-by-Step)

To figure out how to delete messages on Twitch, you will need to use the chat moderation tools provided by the platform. Here are the steps to delete a message on Twitch:

  • On Logging in to your Twitch account, Locate the message by entering the chat room.
  • Click on the message you want to delete. This action will open a menu with different options.
  • Click on the “Delete” button. This action will immediately remove the message from the chat room.
  • If you want to delete multiple messages at once, you can select multiple messages by clicking and dragging over them, and then clicking on the delete button.
